    The industry’s future

    We are acutely aware that oil and gas executives have their hands full during this upheaval, and that there may be more pain to come. But the industry has proven over time its ability to innovate and to reinvent itself. Despite a tough two years, the sector has successfully brought costs down in order to operate in an environment of radically lower oil prices. With the right actions, a more flexible and robust sector can emerge, one that is prepared to get the most value out of existing and yet-to-be-discovered fossil fuel reserves while making an orderly transition to a lower-carbon world. In other words, the industry’s future lies on the optimistic side of Cast Away’s mixed message.
